Widgets convert data sources into visual information you can use to view your network activity. You can create widgets with filters targeted to monitor specific activity and copy them to your Ops Center dashboard, allowing you to organize your network data into compartmental views. This process can help you troubleshoot network issues and recognize potential problems before they occur.

If your widget includes charts, you can click a specific line, bar, or pie wedge to open the source filter. The corresponding filter opens the Monitor view and displays the targeted filter information. The filter lists only the events that correspond with the selected chart item.

See Opening a filter from a widget for information about using widget filters.
